FROM THE PRINCIPAL, Sara Garcia-Perlines
I am very fortunate to be relieving in the principal role this term while Mr Bullied is on leave. In the short time I have been here, I have been made to feel very welcome by staff and students. There is tremendous pride in the school by staff and students alike with a strong focus on success for all students. Set in beautiful grounds, the school reflects a kind and caring community.
Prior to students returning, staff engaged in professional learning. We covered a range of topics to support student learning, with a very practical session run focusing on the effective use of Education Assistants in classes. EAs as they are fondly known, are a valued resource in schools. Additionally, staff commenced work on the school’s self-assessment process by looking at the dimensions by which schools are required to self-assess and provide evidence of achievement, in addition to planning for improvement. The dimensions around which schools are assessed include:
Relationships and Partnerships
Use of Resources
Student Achievement and Progress
Term 3, 2020 will see Bridgetown High School undergo a Public School Review. The reviews provide feedback to principals and their staff to help improve school performance with feedback given in relation to the six dimensions. They also add to existing quality assurance measures. Staff engagement in these workshops demonstrated high engagement and commitment to a self-assessment process focused on growth and improvement.
I look forward to working with you all, towards a successful and productive term.
Our 42 year 9 & 10 students and 4 amazing staff members are dashing off to Perth early tomorrow to catch their flight to Canberra for the 2019 Bridgetown High School Canberra Tour.
Some of the amazing activities that everyone will be doing during this trip include a visit to the Australian National Museum, the Royal Australian Mint, Questacon, the Australian War Memorial and a trip to the Snowy Mountains for some snow tubing and tobogganing fun. Very cool!
We wish everyone a very safe and happy journey and look forward to regular updates during the trip.
